Let’s Get Started
If you like what you’ve seen and read so far, our next step is to talk in person, on the phone, or via Skype about your work and your vision.
It could end here. You might decide I’m not the right editor for you. You might decide you want to shop around before making a decision. However, if we both feel confident about our chemistry as co-collaborators, we are ready to proceed to the next stage. I’ll ask you to e-mail me the first chapter of your manuscript (or the chapter you’ve worked on the most), a chapter you’ve written recently, and an outline or table of contents. I will edit the two chapters and use them as the basis for an estimate.
If you like what you see, I will then draft a letter of agreement defining our respective roles and outlining payment terms.
Finally, we get to work!
